Ok under my micro I’m seeing more than half cloudy and some with amber on top we’re it’s a bubble toward bottom pistil are white on some but still some crystals are milky or cloudy I started in 2nd week of sept now this is my first everything with this plant I have some photos but none that could be gotten from microscope
The idea is actually to dry the plant slowly, so in a 60% humidity base. Environmental for 2,days them 55% then 50%.
We are trying to get a week out of the drying process before tossing in grove bags to cure.
A mosture meter is a great tool, once your buds read 11% toss each plant in a grove bag (cure each plant in one bag to get the best results).
A calibrated humidity gauge is ideal to. Ensure it stabilizes at 62%, if it’s high burp the bag if it’s low add a leaf for a day.
Once it’s stable toss in a humidity pack.
Your cure now is st rting.
This is why we run controllers for our exhaust fans and have a spare heater one and humidity one.
Setting your exhaust fan to turn on at X humidity and vent extra humidity, while also hvaing a humidfior in the tent. Works well
These autos I’ve left lights on 24 hours a day I put tent in above ground old cellar my temps normally stay consistent with what the controller is it the only change so far is when it rained last night normally the humidity reads 40% I can raise it just by putting water on the floor but I didn’t know whether to let it stay at 40 because I’m trying to harvest it but tricombs stem s are milky and 1/4 of them I’d say the top of it is amber the rest are just all milky some of the lower buds are not though there clear and some milky
Until bud has been dried for the longest possible time without over drying and then stabilized at 62% humidity. Generally 2 - 3 weeks at that stable humidity will then be time to consume. Anything before is rushing to sample.
The humidity in my grow space and finishing room can be between 30-40% relative humidity which is a little too dry for drying buds. But as my flowering plants need it a little bit drier than my drying buds, I took an old wardrobe and made it into my drying space. That way the little area that needs to be a little more humid doesn’t mess up the area that needs to be a little drier. Not sure if you have the space for a wardrobe but a simple cardboard box can also do the trick. Some folks on this forum use the cardboard box method, and they have posted photos of their setups if it helps
